Each year, on the day of John Lennon’s birth, Yoko Ono comes to Iceland.
Each year, she lights the Friðarsúlan, the Imagine Peace Tower, in commemoration of her husband’s life and death. The tower of light, based on Viðey Island in Kollfjörður, just offshore from Reykjavík, is lit from October 9, John’s birthday, to December 8, the anniversary of his death.
It’s a beautiful tribute in a peaceful place to a man who shared his dreams of peace with the world while he was here.
